Although GnuPG 2 has been around for nearly 15 years, the old 1.4 version was still in wide use. With Debian and others making 2.1 the default, many interesting things can now be done. In this talk he will explain the advantages of modern key algorithms, like ed25519, and why gpg relaxed some of its more paranoid defaults. The new –quick commands of gpg for easily scriptable key management will be described as well as the new key discovery methods. Finally hints for integration of gpg into other programs will be given.
